The issue is this

Depending on which join comes first.. i.e
                                       
LEFT JOIN         T917_Organization T917  
ON                  T918.Account = T917.ID

LEFT JOIN            T919_ShortAccount T919b
 ON                  T919b.AccountID = T917.ID

If T918.Account  comes first Value of T919b will be missing

if   T919b.AccountID  comes first Values of  T918.Account   will be missing..

Strange.. !

The solution to this problem is to use union all instead of left join
